Listening to Ed Sheeran on Spotify

As I’m working on research for Episode 2 of PBIY TV. His voice makes me wanna cry lol.

Not gonna lie, I cried while playing and singing “A-Team” the other day. The story, seriously, if you don’t cry while listening to that or watching the mv? You have no soul lol.

If you’re interested, below is Sheeran talking about the song’s origin:
The ‘A Team’ came from an experience I had when I did a gig at a homeless shelter,” says Sheeran of the song. “I was 18 at the time and kind of quite naive. So, I was a bit taken back by some of the stories that I heard.

I got home that night and I just wrote a lot of the lyrics. I wanted to write it so it sounded kind of upbeat, so you wouldn’t really know what it’s about, because it’s quite a dark subject.

“A drug like crack cocaine is called a ‘class A’ drug. That’s in the same category as heroin.
Instead of making it clear and just saying what the problem was, I’d say, ‘She’s in the ‘class A’ team’. It was kind of my way of covering up (a person’s addiction), I guess, making it a bit more subtle.”

Alright, hope you’re having as much fun as I am right now 😉

    1. Haha indeed. It’s so deep that most other songs these days feel like a kiddie pool when compared to his songs. And I mostly listen to classics like Sinatra, Beatles, Queen and etc.

      I can see myself using his songs like “thinking out loud” for my future lady too hah! Ah she’s gonna gonna fall so hard for me 😛
      Thank you for this comment 😉

  1. I’m a big Ed Sheeran fan too! 🙂
    I know what the song is about, but didn’t really know how he came about writing it, so thanks for sharing. I do know why and who he wrote the song “Kiss Me” for. I’ll leave it to you to discover. It’s a lovely song- one of my favorites…
